Pinch A Penny — a national swimming pool retail, service and repair franchise — opened its newest store in Hobe Sound, Fla., on Friday, May 26. The new store is located in the Island Crossing Shopping Center at 11778 SE Federal Hwy, Hobe Sound, Fla. 33455.
The Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa is owned by Chad Wright, who was born and currently resides in nearby Stuart. The business has been offering pool service to local customers for the past three months, and the storefront location will now be open to customers to shop for all their pool care and maintenance needs.
Prior to becoming a franchise owner with Pinch A Penny, Wright served as a medical device representative for 20 years. Although his former role is in a different industry, he sees many similarities between the two positions. After selling devices and equipment in medical sales, Wright is taking on a similar role with the sale of pool services and supplies with Pinch A Penny, as well as providing a service for their customers. The common traits between the two were an attractive draw for him when he was looking at franchise options.
“After working for years in the corporate world, I wanted to own a local business and be an active part of the community,” says Wright. “I wanted to operate a service-based business and when I looked at Pinch A Penny, I fell in love with the services they had to offer. They had an opening in my backyard, so the timing and opportunity were perfect.”
In addition to pool supply retail, Pinch A Penny offers ongoing pool service and maintenance, free water testing, equipment repair services, landscape lighting, and more. The new store is open seven days a week with operating hours from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday; 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 on Saturday; and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
“Hobe Sound is a quaint oceanfront town with a large number of pool owners who will benefit from the service and equipment Pinch A Penny offers,” says Jim Eisch, president and CEO of Pinch A Penny. “Chad Wright was born in and currently resides in Stuart and has a tremendous knowledge of the market. He has a strong passion for the business and he will hold himself and his team to the highest standard of customer service.”
